Failed State-Mandated Inspection?

Failed State-Mandated Inspection?

The states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware are rather strict when it comes to their annual car inspection; particularly for auto glass. This includes all sorts of glass components; from windshields to the sides, back, and even the rearview mirrors.

Any sort of damage, be it a simple chip, crack, or even a fainted tint from one side can lead to you failing the PA, NJ, or DE state inspection.

During these safety inspections, passenger cars and light trucks are checked for the following components, other than the glass:

  • Suspension,
  • Steering,
  • Brakes,
  • Tires (including the spare),
  • Chassis integrity,
  • Lighting,
  • Other electrical and heating systems,
  • Windshield wipers,
  • Defrosters, if available,
  • Speedometer,
  • Odometer,
  • Exhaust,
  • Horn,
  • Anti-tamper technology,
  • Any other form of technology used and
  • Signals

One of the most common reasons people fail PA car inspections is because of glass or mirror damage. In order to alleviate this issue, we recommend you inspect your auto glass before heading over to the inspection and getting issues fixed.
